Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2006 (WEEE)

Each EU Member State now has a legal obligation to minimise the disposal of WEEE in landfill sites.

The broad aim of the WEEE regulations is to address the environmental impacts of electrical and electronic equipment when it reaches the end of its life.

We all have a responsibility to contributing to the reuse, recycling and other forms of recovery of WEEE under these Regulations.

Over 75% of waste electrical goods end up in landfill, where lead and other toxins contained in the electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination which can lead to negative effects on human health and the environment.

Stores Direct Ltd offer our local customers free in store take back on a like for like basis when you purchase a new product from us. For our other customers we also offer a take back service again on a like for like basis. When you order a product from us please ask for details regarding both of these services.
You can return your WEEE to us within 28 days of your purchase.

Electrical and Electronic Equipment that was made after 13th August 2005 should display the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol on the packaging or product. The purpose of the symbol is to encourage householders to dispose of their WEEE separately from household waste.
